    I vote for the Trebor monster. It looked exactly like Bertie Bassett. Dr Who killed it by squirting fizzy lemonade on it. The chemical reaction made it dissolve!:rolleyes:
    Obvious solution.:D

    Actually the Kandyman was really well executed - and is perhaps the only decent thing to be in The Happiness Patrol.

    I'd vote for Erato from "Creature From The Pit" 1979 Tom Baker. A good story and a good example of ugly does not equal evil genre. Unfortunately an effects budget of about 2 quid meant that a green bag of sick was the result...

    Personally the most horrific thing in Doctor Who was McCoys attempts at acting from 1987 to 1989. I for one positively cheered when he was shot down in the TVM!

    Must agree with pointon. If not the most ridiculous certainly the noisiest.

    Have to agree, do think they was trying to kill the series off, or just taking the *iss.

    Anybody remeber the 'Larvae Guns'? Looked like an overgrown woodlouse.

    Some of my schoolfriends did a 'play' based on this episode and I still treasure the memory of 'lanky kid' crawling round the floor making threatening noises.

    Garrett,

    Thanks for putting the names to the exoskeletons!

    It was indeed.

    While we are back in the dawn of time I see 'Space Patrol' has just been released on DVD.

    The nice people at BSB had the guts to show Dr Who from the very beginning, when it started its broadcasting, unfortunately this was stopped later on when it merged with Sky, I did get to see some classic, but missed some Patrick Troughton which had been binned.

    I can remember the Chumblies but not the Voords which were they.
    Its a shame UK Gold or even the BBC never put out the really old black and white Dr Who’s.

    'Space Patrol' what was that? all I can say is I like Martian sausages after I have been in suspended animation on my Galasphere.
    I wouldn’t mind seeing Star Fleet again myself.

    Space Patrol = black and white puppets Sci fi series. Early rival to Fireball XL5 and other Anderson stuff.

    It had a rather off the wall sense of humour and didn't take itself too seriously.

    Actually UK Gold did show all the complete b/w stories in the early 90s but then skipped the b/whites for later repeat runs.

    Much of my B/W material consists of off air UK Golds

    I was being ironic in my reply, in the three things I mention, refer to something in it. I.e. The Martian liked sausages, when they covered large distances they went into suspended animation, and the travelled in a ship like a gyroscope called the Galasphere. Try http://scifi.esmartweb.com/space.htm for some info.

    Garrett,

    Many thanks for the URL!

    I missed your references. Without any aide memoire about the only things I could remember from almost 40 years ago were Yobba rays, the martian parrot and some form of transportation system involving transparent tubes.

    I also remember a science lesson where we were asked what forms of radiation we knew. After the obvious ones, I stuck my hand up and said 'Gamma Rays'. Class disolved into laughter until the teacher told them this was correct. But pity the poor lad who then stuck his hand up and said, "Yobba Rays"
    I'm still laughing now!
